Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2023 January 22

This week looks pretty similar to last week.  First, the Midwifes have to deal with some tummy troubles, and not the baby bump type.  His Dark Materials attempts to lead the dead against the Metatron.  The Bad Batch ends up entombed.  On the Legend of Vox Machina, the group walks away through fire and into Rimecleft.  My Hero Academia tries to help, but doesn’t know the right way to put out the fire.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2023 January 15

The cold weather has slowed the new episodes coming out, but we get the return of The Legend of Vox Machina.  Hopefully the new series won’t accidentally spoil my DM’s plot, if Wizards of the Coast don’t spoil everything, first.  Speaking of beginnings, the midwives on call reveal some secrets of their own.  His Dark Materials visit the land of the dead.  The Bad Batch, My Hero Acadamia, and The Owl House also drop new episodes, even if details are light.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2023 January 8

Another light week, as 2023 hasn’t put much on the schedule.  Call the Midwife skips us up to Mayday.  His Dark Materials visits the land of the dead.  The Bad Batch goes it alone, and My Hero Acadamia visits a different underworld.  Any new shows for 2023 that should be on the table that are being missed?

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2023 January 1

Happy New Year!  Get your year started out with some wholesome nurses from Call the Midwife, and we enter their 1968 and the racial tensions included that year.  His Dark Materials tries to fix their Subtle Knife.  The Bad Batch also returns for a second season.  Doom Patrol gives us a sixth episode, without a clue as to its details.  My Hero Academia returns for some infernal travel.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 December 25

The offices may be close due to holidays (or the chilly weather,) but the Breakroom Television remains on for a Call the Midwife Christmas Special.  Doom Patrol spends some time with the Youth.  Speaking of the youth, Star Trek: Prodigy finishes its season. The Bureau hopes you can curl up with some loved ones and enjoy your holiday!

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 December 18

The Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table is also getting ready for the holidays and is winding down.  His Dark Materials starts its third season with two episodes on either side of the table, sandwiching Doom Patrol, who doesn’t give us any clues as to what its fourth episode will be about.  Star Trek: Prodigy‘s season finale starts around a Supernova, and My Hero Academia ends it’s season with a Final Performance.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 December 11

It’s not just the holiday rush, there isn’t a lot to report this week.  Let The Right One In wraps up its season with a huge secret.  Doom Patrol doesn’t tell us about their episode, nor does Star Trek: Prodigy, but at least Trek tells us we are going on a “Mindwalk.”  Mystery Science Theater 3000 gets in the holiday spirit when they watch The Christmas Dragon, and My Hero Academia ties up some threads of hope.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 December 4

Small collection of shows today, which is okay since we’re all going to be too busy putting up holiday decorations to spend much time in the breakroom.  Let The Right One In finds a monster working for Interpol.  Stargirl has their season finale battle.  Doom Patrol patrols your past.  Star Trek: Prodigy rebuilds a cop as an android.  My Hero Academia does a dance.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 November 27

Last week, we missed the Guardians of the Galaxy’s Holiday Special being dropped, but if the breakroom has a ten year old kid who knows how to work the remote like mine, then odds are good it will be on the television at least once this week.  When we can wrest control back, Let The Right One In has Mark and Naomi going on a date.  Sylvester departs StargirlTitans get some blood between brothers.  Star Trek: Prodigy keeps its secrets.  The Peripheral is planting trees.  At My Hero Academia, there’s an outbreak of parasites.  If this wasn’t enough to keep you entertained, you can always catch up on Wednesday or Staged from last week.
